Material list:

 

1/2" AC plywood

Owens Corning 703

Guilford of Maine FR701 fabric

Black cotton broadcloth for backs

Titebond II wood glue

1 1/2" long staples

3/8" long staples

 

IIRC it cost me about $33 per 2' X 4' panel. I purchased enough material for 24 panels.

Roxul and ultra touch denim. Made a HUGE difference.

I've read great things about Vicoustic Cinema Round Premium; they look great and are not outrageously expensive.

I was about to buy room treatments but then the purchase of a new, huge fabric and foam sofa to replace the leather-and-chrome vintage design sofa solved the issue I had in the midrange (I kid you not!)

 

If I ever buy something it will be those vicoustic panels 

BASOTECT foam is GREAT too and available in white but I heard it's quite fragile (its the same foam as the "magic erasers" your wife uses to remove nasty stains); check out eBay there is a lot of different stuff

 

 

good luck!

 

(whatever you do, do not put TOO MUCH absorption; reading a lot on the subject is important)

Check the cost, a/c duct board has excellent noise absorption.
